School district ready to make the grade
With the release of the Mississippi Department of Education’s accountability data, the Tunica County School District is staring at a D at the top of its test paper.
Superintendent Steve Chandler said just like grades in the classroom, the new scale used to measure districts and schools ranges from A through F. Chandler said it provides a model everyone is familiar with and gives the community a clear picture of “where (the district) stands.” Grades are based on performance in state assessments and growth standards, with completion requirements also playing a part for the high school and the district itself.
